Ted Cruz: ‘Big Damn Deal’

Ted Cruz

(StraightShooterNews.com) – Addressing the distressing situation the Joe Biden administration has put America in, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said the significant national security concern is a “big damn deal.”

Listen to the audio below.

During his podcast “Verdict” with co-host Ben Ferguson, Cruz discussed the recent arrests of eight individuals linked to ISIS who had entered the U.S. illegally via the southern border.

These arrests were carried out in major U.S. cities including New York City, Los Angeles and Philadelphia.

Cruz said he was strongly concerned about these developments, stating, “This story is a big damn deal. We have eight suspected terrorists, with ISIS-K, who’ve been arrested.”

“Now they came into this country illegally at our southern border. The Biden administration apprehended them, and then they let them go. They let terrorists go,” he added.

He emphasized the potential threat posed by these lapses in border security and stated, “And I’ve been saying for a long time, we are at a greater risk of a major terrorist attack in the United States right now than we have been any time since September 11.”

Further intensifying the situation, the New York Post reported details from the investigation and noted that “part of the investigation featured a wiretap which revealed one of the now-arrested individuals was talking about bombs.”

Cruz also criticized his political opponents for mishandling national security and questioned their decision-making and its impact on public safety.

“I’ve got 51 Democrat colleagues, how many of them in Capitol Hill are being asked, ‘Why does your party keep releasing terrorists into America? And why are you endangering the lives of American families across this country?’” he questioned.

The senator concluded with a grave warning by attributing the potential for future attacks on U.S. soil to Joe Biden’s administration’s border policies.
